The Colours!


Red Peppers and Olives - My favorite part of any deli!

Greek mythology records that Athena, the Goddess of wisdom and peace, struck her magic spear into the Earth, and it turned into an olive tree, thus, the location where the olive tree appeared and grew was named Athens, Greece, in honor of the Goddess, Athena. Local legend tells us that the original olive tree still stands growing after many centuries at the ancient sacred site.

    To answer your question, the building featured on my site is sitting empty or used for storage until there is enough resources to refurbish it.
